GRAND OPENING 12-21-12
Luxury craftsman estate in an ancient forest.
Only a few minutes from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park main entrance near Kilauea summit and the friendly artists community of Volcano Village. Volcano Rain Forest Lodge is located in a secluded, private, 3-acre forest. Each room is designed to view the forest and lava outcroppings.
The lodge is a 2,300 square foot, one level, luxury home with three bedroom/bathroom suites, gourmet kitchen, living room with lava rock fireplace, 16' x 20' dining room, and over 1,400 square feet of covered, outside living area (lanai).
The Lodge has Mango flooring, baseboards, and door/window trim. Mango is also used in the bathroom cabinets and mirror frames. The doors are solid core knotty Alder. The ceilings are beautiful Canadian Pine with Red Western Cedar beams from Oregon. Counter tops in the Lodge are granite. Bathroom walls and floors are gauged Quartzite.
This beautiful B&B/Lodge provides all the elements to make your vacation on the Big Island a memorable experience.
It has been said that sometimes we need to take a step backward in order to go forward. The Lodge will afford you that opportunity.
The Lodge is available for weddings, parties, and corporate events.
Rent a suite for $175/night or the entire lodge and 3 acre estate for $275-$345/night (three suites, kitchen, living room, dining room, laundry room, lanais).
I have over ten years experience in the Hawaiian vacation rental business. I wanted guests to experience luxury and privacy in a Hawaiian/Craftsman home, while being able to view and enjoy ancient forests and lava features from every room and private lanais. I built this home to last for generations, with only high quality construction materials being used. The Volcano Rainforest Lodge took years to complete because great efforts were made to spare the forest and lava features. No bulldozer ever touched the lot. The utilities were placed underground to maximize the views from The Lodge.
This property was purchased because of its location. While only minutes away from the national park, Volcano Village, and the golf course, the home site has a remote, rural feeling for those who desire privacy and quiet. The square, three acre lot allows for an extensive hiking trail network exclusive to our guests. The property has numerous lava outcroppings to explore as well as 200-year-old Ohia trees and 20' Hawaiian Hapu'u tree ferns.
The Lodge has over 1,400 square feet of covered, outside living area. Comfortable patio furniture surrounds the house for guests to enjoy the forest in every direction. The hot tub is expected 5/13. All of the lava excavated during construction was used in the foundation of the home, fireplace, and retaining walls. Exotic woods add to the beauty and elegance of The Lodge. A giant Mango tree which once blocked the highway is now our floor and trim. Come and enjoy this beautiful Hawaiian Craftsman home.
